Trump Rakes in Massive Approval Numbers for State of the Union Address

According to polling done by CBS News and YouGov, the President was able to cut through the noise, unify the country and successfully make his pitch for border security. After watching the speech, 71 percent of Americans believe there is a crisis at the southern border.

The CBS News poll also showed President Trump easily obtained approval from Independents while Democrats continue their resistance.
76 percent approved of Trump's State of the Union speech

A clear majority of people who watched President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night liked what they saw.

According to a CBS poll, 76 percent of American viewers approved of the speech. However, the same poll said only 56 percent felt that the speech helped to unite the country, and just 33 percent said they think Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will work more closely together after the speech.
When broken down by party, almost all Republicans, 97 percent, said they approved of Trump’s speech, and 82 percent of independents said the same. Only 30 percent of Democrats, however, say they approved.
Just something to 'put-out' here and see what kind of comments the thread generates.

Poll numbers on this are skewed by the fact that Trump supporters were MUCH more likely to watch the speech to begin with. Voters who understand that Donald Trump is a pathological liar were much less likely to watch the speech. I watched it mostly for the political theater aspect of it. I enjoyed the moment when it appeared that Nancy was giving Donald 'the clap', even though he has surely had it before.

Nice 'jab' at Trump.

And yes, stats can be skewed. Fact is that it was widely accepted and liked. Want me to include a link from CNN?

BTW: I think we all know that it's necessary to know your enemy... Anyone trying to tell me that only Trump supporters watch and listened to his speech are full of shit.
